If your Wii is NTSC and the game copy is also NTSC the update will not brick your Wii. If I'm not mistaken you can only do damage if you try installing an update from a different region.
Other than that I can only suggest you find the IOS 53 wad from your region and install it from the homebrew channel using wad installer.
i have got it working my sister bought wii active when i slapped the disc in it said it needed to update wii to play the game i was really worried about bricking my wii after installing the update i put punch out (pal) in and it works so im pretty happy only having problems now with a few ntsc games but not sure why the metallica gh works no problems and its ntsc download, why is it some of the ntsc games i have not work but gh:metallica works fine
Ok dude. Here is what you need to do. Download and run wiibrickblocker v.1.3r on the punch-out ISO. Install the following IOS files: IOS38-64-v3609, IOS53-64-v4113, and IOS55-64-v4633. Run on Gamma 0.3.
ive already got punch out working i want to get some ntsc games to work some do and some dont just wondering how i install that gamma program or gecko os im a noob so dont really know much about installing things
Send me your email address and I will zip it and send it to you. You do have Homebrew installed...right?
Hey I hope someone can help I just backed up a copy of Punch Out and I get error 972 with NeoG 6 and 1101 with NeoG 7 I have quite a few different wads, if someone has a suggestion i would really appreciate it. If you need to know specifics i will be more than happy to let you know. I have wii 4.1U. This is the first game that i burned that has not worked.
just wanted to update and let anyone know that I got Punch Out working, all I had to do was burn the game on slower speed 2x instead of 4x.
